The Middlesex District Attorney’s office said 29-year-old Angela Garcia, 21-year-old Devine McKinney, and 22 year-old Selena Simonphone all lied during the investigation.

All three are charged with witness intimidation.

Police are still trying to find Xavier Dejesus, who has been identified as a suspect in Mendez’s death.

Police believe the Dejesus and Mendez were fighting over a car just before the shooting.
